If you have already put away your decorations for the year, you should still make an inventory of the new decorations you purchased. It will keep you from buying duplicate items. You should have a list of the number of boxes, bags, rolls of wrapping paper and Christmas cards you have on hand.

If everything is boxed up, but still not taken to the attic or garage, you might want to open them up to inventory them. Be sure to set aside any that you no longer love to donate.

If your tree is still up and the halls are still decked, I have one thing to say…”The wise men already came, (Jan. 6th), it’s time to start putting it all away!”

When you finish, you can always decorate for Valentine’s Day and the house will no longer look bare.
